    IRVING -- Coach Wade Phillips did everything he could to avoid calling the excessive celebration penalty against Marc Colombo on Sunday a dumb play.
    But it was easy to tell Monday that Phillips was using a great deal of self-restraint when talking about the 15-yard penalty after Jason Witten's fourth quarter touchdown.

    Witten gave the ball to the offensive tackle after the score and Colombo spiked it. Then Witten and Colombo jumped for a chest bump, Colombo lost his balance, fell down, then turned a back flip on the ground.

    NFL players are prohibited from touching the ground when celebrating a touchdown.

    "We went through that with Terrell Owens where he got in a track stance one time and touched the ground," Phillips said. "Since then we told everybody you just don't touch the ground celebrating.

    That really was a harmless, unchoreographed celebration. That was a gmae changer, but..oh well. This has been a freaky year so far.

    Certainly a lot of meaningless coulda-woulda-shouldas. This team could very easily be 3-1 or even 4-0, but the littel things have become bigs things, and here were are. But we can't live in the past.

    Believe it or not, I'm still holding to my 10-6 and division crown prediction--though we may have to share the crown.
